I bought this book - "Think Big And Kick Ass" - a few weeks ago and now that I've finished Atlas Shrugged I thought now was a timely opportunity to get started on it.
I went to read it this evening though and Trump's grilling face on the front cover inspired/intimidated/FORCED me to spend the last two hours on Accounting revision for university instead!
Inspiring ei? And I havn't even cracked it open yet! ;)

I finished reading Atlas Shrugged at 2am last night, which for me, is saying something. Towards the end it was so gripping, so unstoppable, that it drew me effortlessly past my bedtime of 10pm.
It was a great adventure, with interesting and unforgettable themes. I'm sure it will continue to effect me for the rest of my days.
Men who are Gods of creation, love, and life.
Men who have values, integrity and truth as their foundations.
A world of traders, trading value for value, and striving for a life or greater and greater experience, and greater and greater joy.
It's magic really :)
I'm a big advocate of drinking water. A really big advocate. It makes me tingle with joy and the feel of smooth as silk water trickling down my aching throat.
But the faster paced my days, and the more alert I need to be, the more I appreciate a nice refreshing Coke in the morning. People may say it's bad and full and chemicals and what not, but a Diet Coke a day seems to keep me sharp. Thanks Coke ;)

To further prove that Mauritians are the best climbers there are, here's a picture of me and fellow Mauritian, Vincent Manera, outside the Central Park Tower which we had just conquered as part of today's Step Up For MS.
Nothing soothes the soul like physical activity, and to boot - the view at the top was awe inspiring. From the distant hills to Perth's nearby islands, the whole of this world was laid at our feet.
Like Vinnie said in reflection of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead - It was all by the efforts of our brave young selves, and the minds and efforts and the people who mastered the forces of nature to build the thing in the first place.
